With hairdressers reopening on Monday, most people can’t wait to get their hair cut after over 3 months. Children were also keen to have their hair cut too including Jessica pictured above.
Jessica, aged 8 though decided this week to donate her large bundle of thick hair to the Little Princess Trust again. She originally donated her hair aged 5 in July 2018, after meeting a little girl with no hair due to alopecia.
Little Princess Trust makes wigs from real hair for sick children and young people, aged up to 24 years across the UK and Ireland. They accept hair donations from 17cms upwards. There is great demand for hair especially as lockdown stopped their work but luckily they have now restarted.
Victoria, Jessica’s Mum said, “Jessica has never stopped caring for people and thinks of people before herself. As a Brownie, she believes it’s important to the Brownie guide law, which is ‘a Brownie Guide thinks of others before herself and does a Good Turn every day.’ Jessica donated another large bundle of thick, hair of 25 cms. I thought this story might inspire others to donate hair especially if they are cutting a lot off after lockdown hairdresser closures.”
